Textures: Rome / by a zugunruhe


The eternal city reads like tree rings throughout the city. Shaped by and around ruins being slowly uncovered of Ancient Rome, Papal spending sprees, Mussolini-era fascist architecture, and garnishes of 60s aesthetics in various part of the city due to the post-war Italian economic miracle.

Fendi took over the Square Coliseum and failed bike shares are strewn about, but corks still fill the cracks of cobblestone streets and millennia-old faces look down on tourists.
